Perhaps I'm a bit too unrealistic to believe that Napoli are going to invade Piemonte this Saturday and beat Juve on their home pitch. Hell, the way the Old Lady is playing lately maybe it would be asking too much for the Vesuviani to beat the Northern powerhouse at the San Paolo. But what kind of fan would I be if I didn't believe in my team or do a little trash talking? Napoli, after-all, are also in-form and are presently enjoying a renaissance of sorts under new skipper Walter Mazzarri, and like I said before: at our best we can beat anybody. So I'm going to declare it loud and proud: Partenopei are going to sack Turin and return to Naples with all three points. Maybe I didn't learn my lesson after the miserable results of my last bold predictions, my friends certainly won't let me live it down, but the embarrassment of being wrong will be nothing compared to the gloating, "I told you so" when I'm right.
Calcio Catania v AC Fiorentina:
Sadly, I believe the Rossoblu's woes will continue this weekend in Florence. The Viola will be too much for the faltering Elefantini. (Hopefully we could steal a point.)
AS Bari v UC Sampdoria:
Sampdoria will be looking to bounce back from their embarrassing 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Juventus. Unfortunately, it's Bari who's lined up to face them next. Ironically, it will be Bari's native son, Antonio Cassano, who will wreak havoc against the Galletti.
Palermo Calcio v Genoa CFC:
I hate to end on a down note, so I'll predict that Palermo will rebound from their midweek defeat against Inter and beat Genoa. This match should be a dogfight since only one point separates these combatants in the standings. The Grifone are coming off an impressive win against Fiorentina.
